"It wasn’t the first time that women had argued for the right to vote. It wasn’t the first time that there was a convention of women that talked about a women’s right to participate in public affairs. Abolitionists had been talking about it for decades, but one of the things that happened in Seneca Falls is that [Elizabeth Cady] Stanton really made the vote central to women’s rights,"  says Carol Faulkner, professor of history. She was interviewed for the Syracuse.com article "Crusade for the Vote: How Central NY launched the women’s suffrage movement." 08/12/20
